I am so excited, on Sunday I get to finally have my first basenji meet-up! I have never see another basenji besides my own before, and when I emailed about a rescue needing help in WI, the person in charge got me in touch with another basenji owner about 25 miles away from me I called her and she was SO nice, and invited us out to her house this weekend to meet her to basenjis. Hopefully it will be lots of fun!
The only thing I am nervous about, is how Tosca will get along with her two dogs. With the exception of one dog I know, Tosca's hackles go up and she often makes the snarky sound with practically every dog we meet. She usually goes crazy sniffing, and I have noticed that when she sniffs the rear end she is fine :), but when she sniffs their heads I can usually expect a snarky sound to start coming from her. She has never hurt another dog before, but I always pull her away then, cause I don't know what she will do. Can anyone give me any advice on how to introduce them, and how to tell the difference between playful noises and ones that could be a problem? I know some snarking is ok, but how do I know how to tell when they should be separated, and when they should just be allowed to play and "work it out."
I just want to make a good impression, so any advice would be great, thanks!
